Solar Feed-in Tariffs for South Australia
Solar feed-in tariffs (FIT) are the payments made to solar owners for the energy they generate and send back into the grid. You will get paid for excess electricity generated by your solar system, that is not used in your home. Under a net feed-in tariff, a fee is paid for any solar energy that goes back into the grid from your house.
The South Australian state government mandates a minimum retail feed-in tariff rate of 5.3c/kWh for residential solar power systems up to 5kW. Retailers can, and some do, provide higher rates for power you feed back into the system, so make sure to check with your retailer about what rate you can expect.
